Most time if you shift focus from full screen movie it will be better to come out full screen mode automatically.
Here is a usecase where it is better to keep movie continue playing in full screen mode.

I have a monitor connected to laptop, hence I should be able to work on some other application on laptop screen while the movie continuing in full screen on the big external monitor.
So I would like disable automatically coming out from full screen mode, if full screen lost focus.

1. Connect your laptop to an external monitor.
2. Open firefox on the external monitor.
3. Open another application (say, notepad) on laptops screen.
4. On firefox play a movie.
5. Goto full screen mode.
6. Now with mouse move focus to notpad.

Movie playing in firefox comes out of full screen.

When user work on notepad movie should continue playing in the big screen on full screen mode.
